of the first times last wednesday that governor romney looked presidential at a time where president obama did not. now, with these issues and the new details coming out, it looks even worse for the administration. and if governor romney and his campaign can take a step back and look presidential in a more holistic way, not only show the strengths in some of the tough talk they have been doing, but show poise and temperature rans with their approach as the details come out, i think it can play well for them and can go very well for them going into the second debate. >> that's interesting advice. you're advising restraint to the romney campaign. let's move on to the swing state polls because there's a lot of interesting numbers we are seeing. just yesterday you were saying to me let's wait until we see numbers from the battleground states. if you look a ohio, michigan, new hampshire, president obama's lead before the first debate is shrinking a lot. in some cases he's still ahead in the states, but clearly the debate made a big difference. >> it was the evidence i was looking for as you got ins
